I stayed in the Inn with my family (two kids 11 and 13) for two days. It was a great experience. People extremely friendly, helpful, and laid back; breakfast delicious; location great. What more would you want? HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

I had booked a trip to kona. 1 week before I had to cancel due to a personal emergency. I explained this to Ken, the bnb owner and he was ruthless. He said he had recently been charged extra for paying his taxes late and that I needed to learn to keep my word. He did give me the option... More

This Party is flat out lying. Our cancellation policy is very clear and easy to find. We tried to rebook the space for them and could not due to the quick cancellation. If we could have re-booked their space we would have given them a 90% refund. They were never here so can not give us a -0- They agreed... More

Stayed here on the last night of our 2 week stay on the Island. Wish we had known about this place from the start. It was our favorite of the 3 places we stayed and will definitely stay there again. Very friendly staff, great breakfast, rooms, bird watching and views.

Not purpose built but works well. Private. V relaxing. Staff want to help. Good breakfasts. Re the free snorkelling gear - you get what you pay for. So BYO. Good washing machine. My son left his jumper. Ken took care to get it to Sydney ASAP. (Thanks mate.)

My boyfriend and I just recently stayed in the Japanese Tea House and we absolutely loved it. It is a beautiful, clean, very unique environment. It is a place to go if you want to relax and enjoy nature. We enjoyed listening and watching the birds while enjoying a beautiful breakfast that was included and watching the chicken with her...

We loved the house, due to the friendly staff, the delicious breakfast and the location in the hills of Kona. The room was very clean as well as the rest of the house. We loved the breakfast, especially the waffels and the fresh fruit. There are a lot of birds and chickens around, so you have 'noise' during the night,... More

This was just what we needed because we had just landed, tired, and it is only 20 minutes from the Kona airport. Not what I would call posh but the beds were lean and comfy, and the location and grounds were interesting. Breakfast was fresh fruit (papaya with lime often) and make your own omelette bar every day. A little... More

This is a rustic little place hidden in the hills south of Kona. We stayed in the Jasmine Room. The place is nicely nestled in the lush surroundings. Frogs sang at night, roosters marked the dawn, and chickens from somewhere wandered about. The grounds are picturesque. The library is fabulous. Very inviting, open and restful. Breakfast was wonderful with a... More

On arrival Ken welcomed us very friendly and showed us our "room". We stayed in the Japanese Teahouse (although we made a reservation for the Makua room but didn't realize it untill we checked out and looked at our reservation). Anyway, the teahouse bedroom is a bit old, but the bathroom is new fashioned and very nice. The B&B is... More

This rustic older place is well maintained and is surrounded by trees and flowers. Perfect base to explore the west and northwest side of the Big Island. It is away from the busy tourist areas and very reasonably priced. There are multiple different choices of rooms to stay in. We stayed 3 nights in the upstairs Jasmine Room which was... More
